Doomfist Is Pounding His Way into Overwatch in New Origin Trailer

Overwatch Doomfist origin trailer released

A powerful new hero is getting closer to joining the Overwatch roster. Doomfist has pounded his way into the PTR for the mmo fps, which means he'll eventually make his way into the main game itself. To commemorate his arrival, Blizzard has released an Overwatch Doomfist origin trailer showing the bad, bad dude in action. Fun fact: the real name of Doomfist is Akande Ogundimu.

The new Overwatch Doomfist character uses a cannon gauntlet as his weapon of choice. He's a highly-mobile, powerful frontline fighter due to his powerful cybernetics (of course, the origin trailer shows him punching his way through a concrete wall with just his bare hands!). The abilities for the Overwatch Doomfist hero are:

Hand Cannon: Doomfist fires a short-range burst from the knuckles of his fist. Its ammunition is automatically regenerated over a short time.

Seismic Slam: Doomfist leaps forward and smashes into the ground, knocking nearby enemies toward him.

Rising Uppercut: Doomfist uppercuts enemies in front of him into the air.

Rocket Punch: After charging up, Doomfist lunges forward and knocks an enemy back, dealing additional damage if they impact a wall.

The Best Defense...: Doomfist generates temporary personal shields when he deals ability damage.

Meteor Strike: Doomfist leaps into the sky, then crashes to the ground, dealing significant damage.

If you want to try out the new Overwatch Doomfist character, then you'll need to install the PTR. There's no timetable given by Blizzard as to when Doomfist will appear in the main mmofps.
